Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership
Hurricane Island Foundation's mission is to create and preserve an open and sustainable island community that supports and enhances the educational opportunities of youth from Maine and beyond. Hurricane Island is 10 miles southeast of Rockland and two miles southwest of Vinalhaven in the Fox Islands archipelago, Penobscot Bay, Maine. The island measures about one mile by one-half mile, totaling 125 acres. Our programs reach public and private middle and high school students, college and university students, graduate researchers, undergraduate interns, amateur naturalists, scientists, sustainable engineers, and volunteers who are committed to our mission and excited about the opportunities on Hurricane! We host Farm to Table dinners on the island three times throughout the summer, which you can read about here: http://www.hurricaneisland.net/farm-to-table Our mooring field is open and is first come first serve. All are welcome to grab a mooring and come ashore for a picnic, a hike, or just to learn about the programs going on.
